Super intentions — NFL Final Four!

Here we go again — the best the NFL has to offer will put it all on the line next Sunday for a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, February 2, 2014 in MetLife Stadium, New York/New Jersey. The Seattle Seahawks (14-3) will play the San Francisco 49ers (14-4) in Seattle in the rubber game for the NFC Championship. The New England Patriots (13-4) will meet the record-setting Denver Broncos (14-3) in the AFC title game. It’s the third straight year the Patriots have reached the AFC title game.

Ravens vs. 49ers an all-Harbaugh Super Bowl


NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans braces for Super Bowl XLVII, the first Super Bowl in that city since the horrific storm Hurricane Katrina. This is the 10th time the NFL has brought the world stage of the Super Bowl to New Orleans; the last Super Bowl held here was Super Bowl XXXVI, New England 20—St. Louis 17.

NFL ‘final four’: Not much has changed

One Kansas City Chiefs player murdered the mother of his child, then took his own life. The very next weekend, a Dallas Cowboys player driving his car while drunk killed his passenger, teammate Jerry Brown, who was sober.

49ers knock Bears out of first!


Three weeks ago, the Chicago Bears were rolling along at 7-1 thinking Super Bowl with a dominating defense and leading the NFC North. Two weeks ago, their quarterback Jay Cutler took a vicious shot to the head on a pass play versus the Houston Texans and suffered a concussion; he has not played since. The Bears later lost that game last Sunday 13-6 to the Texans and Monday night were beaten soundly on the road by the San Francisco 49ers 32-7. It’s the eighth straight time the Bears have lost at San Francisco; three of those losses have been in the playoffs. They have not been close to winning (41-0, 52-14, 44-7, 26-0, 17-0 and 44-15), and Monday night they trailed 20-0 at half before losing 32-7. Continue Reading →
